Writing a script for a video is akin to writing a haiku: you have to compress a story into a short amount of time so every word must have meaning and clearly convey the idea. If the script doesn’t convey your story in a clear and compelling manner, it won’t matter if you have great graphics or have Brad Pitt in the lead role- people will click on another video.
Over 15 Years of Video Production Experience
I have been involved in film and video production in some fashion since 1997. I received my film degree from Emerson College in Boston, MA in 1999. After graduation, I founded Athena Associates, a video production company.
Athena Associates made training and promotional videos and also shot events such as weddings. I worked with my clients from beginning to end through the entire production process to understand the story that they wanted to tell.
In 2004, I closed Athena Associates after five years when I moved to Los Angeles, but film and video have never been far from my mind. While in the MSIM program and after graduation, I worked for Corelytics, a financial dashboard SaaS. I made several videos for them explaining the features of their product including this one, entitled Corelytics Financial Dashboard Demo.
I also wrote, directed and edited videos for Term Management, a taxonomy consulting firm.
